Brasileiro Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 8th October 2017
Kick-off at 21:30 UK/ 22:30 CET
Venue: Ressacada (Florianopolis).
The time is running out for Avai to avoid a drop in the first season after promotion. The team is on 35 points which gives them a chance to move to safety with a win on Wednesday. But it is extremely tight at the bottom half of the table as they might need to consistently pick up points with 6 match-weeks to go in the season.
The recent form gives them slight hope as 2 wins and a draw come from the last four. However, they has been inconsistent throughout the season, especially they were unable to make home advantage count on most of the occasions. Only 18 points came from the 16 games at home so far.
Bahia are amongst the contenders for a place in the Copa Sudamericana. Yet, the affair at the bottom half is tight and they can fall off the zone if points are not picked up at a consistent basis in the remaining weeks.
One of the positives for Bahia is their recent form as they picked up 2 wins and a draw from the recent three. Moreover, they lost just once in the last 8 and are one of the tough sides to beat in the league at the moment.

Avai vs Bahia: Predictions
